It was narrated to me by Moḥammed bin al-Ḥassan al-Ṣaffār, from Moḥammed bin Aḥmed, from his father, and al-Ḥassan bin al-Ḥussain, from Moḥammed bin Sinān Abī al-Jārūd:

From Abī Jaʿfar عليه السلام, who said: Whoever says ‘Glory be to Allāh’ (SubḥānAllāh) without conceit, Allāh will create from it a bird for him, two tongues and two wings – praising Allah on his behalf, among the musabbiḥīn1, until the coming of the Hour (i.e. Day of Judgement). The likeness of that (dhikr) is ‘All Praise is due to Allāh, and there is no god but Allāh, and Allāh is Greater’ (al-Ḥamdulillah a Lā Ilāha Ila Allāh, Wa-Allāhu Akbar).

1. musabbiḥīn: Those who do tasbīḥ, i.e. angels.

حدثني محمد بن الحسن الصفار عن محمد بن أحمد عن أبيه والحسن بن الحسين عن محمد بن سنان أبي الجارود عن أبي جعفر عليه السلام قال: من قال سبحان الله من غير تعجب خلق الله منها طائرا له لسانان وحاجبان يسبح الله عنه في المسبحين حتى تقوم الساعة، ومثل ذلك الحمد لله ولا إله إلا الله والله أكبر
